It's interesting that they picked "Kid Twist" as the name of the character - The original Kid Twist was a member of a vicious outfit known as The Eastmans, a gang headed by Monk Eastman at the turn-of-the-(20th)-century, in the notorious Five Points area of New York - He was a trusted lieutenant of Eastman, and a bloodthirsty murderer, who was offed by a rival gang around 1919 - This movie is unwatchable - Too slow and needs to be uploaded again as the reviewer before stated.
